Abstract

During therapy, patients require adequate levels of cognition in order to stimulate the best response during testing, with exercise being the primary form for preparing patients for therapy. The purpose of this research was to examine minor influential neurocognitive changes after a moderate, short-term exercise session for average populations. Twenty volunteer participants (5 female and 15 male) within the age range of 18-31 years performed two randomly-assigned testing sessions, control and submaximal exercise, prior to completing a neurocognitive test battery (Concussion Vital SIgns, CVS). For the submaximal exercise test the YMCA bike test was used. Immediately following the independent variable condition, Concussion Vital Signs (CVS) test battery was performed on a lab computer, which recorded verbal/visual memory, psychomotor speed, executive function, cognitive flexibility, continuous performance test correct responses, reaction time/simple reaction time, choice reaction time correct, and shifting attention correct.

Key Words: YMCA-bike test, Concussion Vital Signs, submaximal, neurocognitive.

The effects of sub maximal exercise n cognition in adults

During therapy, patients require adequate levels of cognition in order to stimulate the best response during testing, with exercise being the primary form for preparing patients for therapy. The purpose of this research was to examine minor influential neurocognitive changes after a moderate, short-term exercise session for average populations. Twenty volunteer participants (5 female and 15 male) within the age range of 18-31 years performed two randomly-assigned testing sessions, control and submaximal exercise, prior to completing a neurocognitive test battery (Concussion Vital SIgns, CVS).
